Nonsense from Botham?

On Day 1 of the England v Pakistan Test match, Ian Botham said something that sounded absurd to me, but I'm happy to be proven wrong. Apparently, he said, you can have all the sprinklers in the world, "but there is no substitute for real rain".

Is that complete nonsense or am I demonstrating a lack of scientific prowess?

Try and remember the last time you heard that idiot Botham utter anything of interest or insight. He is an embarrasment to himself these days.

I imagine Sir Botham was referring to the nitrogen component of rain water. Or possibly the chlorine/flourine present in tap water.
